We're in this together!!!"
Frank A. Brock
AS COVENANT'S CENTRAL
FRANK A. BROCK
No one officially knew until the October meeting of the Board of Trustees who would be named
as the fourth President of Covenant College.
Rumors and wishes flew all over campus those few days. When the announcement was made in
chapel on that Friday, Frank A. Brock and his wife Dottie made their way down the isle to the
stage amist a standing ovation. With his wife at his side, Mr. Brock said in reference to his new
service to the school, "We're in this together!!!"
As the crowd in the chapel applauded, one of the newest members of the Board asked a student
seated next to him, "Are you pleased?"
The college senior stated, "There isn't an unhappy heart in the whole place."
That statement rings true now, just as it did then, and just as it will in years to come.
No matter what season of the year it is, we'll expect to see the Brock's on campus. From hosting
the Boards of Trustees and Associates, to planting and watering the flower beds in front of Carter
Hall, it can be truely said that the Brock's have their hands in every aspect of the College Life.
Frank Brock can be seen in his office or in the Great Hall, having lunch with administration,
staff, faculty and students. You might often catch him in the Academic Building engaged in a
discussion on the latest social and political issue of the day. All this is to say that no matter where
he goes, Mr. Brock generates excitement about Christian higher education unlike anyone else.
What has happened here with Frank Brock (and what is to happen) will effect Covenant to the
same extent which Elvis Presley affected the music industry. Which is why the TARTAN staff has
not only dedicated this annual to him, but enthemed it .

with the campus in a concert in the

The annual Christmas feast was
once again enjoyed by the Covenant
Community. This delightful event was,
as always, well attended. With tickets
going on sale in November, everyone
lined up in the chapel, hoping to get a
good seat. For those who were fortu-
nate enough to get tickets to this
merry event, it was a splendid occa-
sion. The entertainment was grand. Of
course they heard our own Madrigal
Singers directed by Dr. Hamm. They
were also entertained with music from
the Brass Choir. Some special music
was also provided by Tori Page on the
flute. The jesters brought laughter to
the guests of all ages, and of course,
everyone enjoyed the delicious eight
course dinner. The dinners were held
on December 3, 4, 5 at 6:30 pm. in
the Great Hall. Mr. and Mrs. Bill Hig-

Campus Preview Weekend is
the time that high school stu-
dents come to look at our cam-
pus. To make their stay fun, as
well as informative, we provide
activities for them. Thursday
kicks off with an Ice Cream So-
cial. Campus clubs set up tables
to show visitors what Covenant
has to offer. Friday is filled
with seminars on majors and
classes. Friday night begins
with a talent show and con-
cludes with Belz Bash. It is a
real highlight of the weekend.

This event was the most high-tech
production ever seen at the college.
With a live jazz band (Stephen
Lauren Bigger and Waterfall) and
large screen projection, the whole
evening was certainly electrifying.
Both nights, the Great Hall surged
with a current of excitement as spec-
tators waited for 'Late Night' to begin.
For approximately 3 hours, the
crowd did nothing but sit and laugh
and enjoy the show.
Producers Tim Baum and Richard
Russell put in many long and 'late
nights' in their jobs of directing and
producing the whole show. The theme
of the night was "Totally Jazzed About
It." This night by far outdid all other
previous productions of "Late Night at

On November 13th, about 150 Cov-

for the Covenant Game Shows. The
first priority for the evening was din-

ice cream sundaes. Next came the
entertainment, after a Vanna White
look-alike contest. Several Covenant
students put on our own renditions of
Wheel of Fortune, hosted by Chip Fra-
zier and ienny Shell, and the Newly-

Finally, a group of Make Me Laugh

and directed by our own Jennifer
Shell. Jennifer adapted selections
from eight of O'Henry's plays and
compiled them into one play. The play
was performed at 8:00 p.m. on March
25th and 26th. "Eight at Eight" had a
rather large cast of characters com-
prised of many of Covenant's talented
students. Each student did a great job
and added delight to the play with
their own unique talents. "Eight at
Eight" was Jennifer Shell's Senior In-
tegration Project. It was obvious that
she put a great deal of work into it.
Her efforts certainly paid off because

before President Brock's Inau-

of Covenant's student body
along with members of the

to the Covenant Community.

Community. The inaugural events be-

April 7. April 8, at 10:00 as the chapel
filled and awaited the auspicious oc-
casion, the sound of the traditional
bagpipe could be heard coming to-
ward the chapel. As the processional
began it was an awesome sight as
presidents from other colleges and
our own faculty marched down in
their robes and caps. The inaugural
address entitled "You can make a
difference" encouraged Covenant Col-
lege, as well as visitors to strive to
make a difference in our world as
Christians. President Brock was in-
stalled into his position, with the tra-
ditional emblem given to him, as the
chapel resounded with a standing
ovation. Following the Inaugural Ser-
vice, students, faculty, family, trust-
ees and visitors had a formal dinner in
the Great Hall. The Hall had been
beautifully decorated with flowers,
crisp linens and smiles. A fine meal
was then given to all. It was a time of
gladness as President Brock took of-
fice. With the college, family and
friends behind him, we know that he
will do a fine job as the leader of
Covenant into the future.

with a breakfast for everyone in the
Great Hall. Then, commencement be-

procession of the graduates to the
chapel green. Three graduates gave
their testimony. They were Lansing
Hamilton, Bryon Chapin and George
Robertson. Dr. Charles Colson gave

The President's Message
You have bestowed on me a great
and awesome privilege to serve as the
President of the Student Body. We
have witnessed together God's unmis-
takable presence on our campus this
The most exciting experience for
us was the announcement of Frank
Brock as our new President. I am still
moved when I listen to the tape of
that chapel just as I was when I sat
there thinking that Mr. Brock had
proved himself far superior to any of
the eighty some candidates we had
reviewed in the search committee.
God has blessed us with a man that
we had thought could not exist.
There were also those less glorious
times of struggles through issues of
food service and chapel music. But
what I will always remember about
you is that you, the students, were
concerned enough to work through
the proper channels to make things
We have certainly seen the sover-
eign Spirit of God move on our campus
to bring Christians to stronger com-
mitments, to stretch others in new
areas of growth, and to even convert
some who had never known Christ.
My prayer is that revival would
come to our campus, and it will come
in this fashion — when you begin to
see that the Word of God is directly
applicable to your life and you begin
to live out what it says.

Board Of Trustees
Chairman Of The Board
Dr. Richard Chewning
"Write what you would like about Covenant College ... in 350 words or less." If the editor had provided
ten times that number, it too would be insufficient to express my thoughs. Fifteen years of close association
with those who are the College has filled my heart with much awe, gratitude, and love.
Only God really knows the sacrifice made by those through whom the College was given life. What kind of
vision would compel parents to send their sons and daughters to a new, unaccredited, small community of
Christian educators? Why would faculty, administrators, and staff all work for a small portion of the pay and
recognition available elsewhere?
They loved the Lord Jesus Christ! His claim on their lives, their perceptions of the Christian community's
needs, and a host of other forces welded our founding visionaries together with a sense of calling that even
they can only partially understand today, for what resulted exceeded even their dreams. They sacrificed
much; we are the beneficiaries. I am tremendously grateful to God for them.
The twenty-five years that followed the first ten years are no less filled with evidences of God's
blessings. The college moved to Chattanooga and who could have envisioned the kindness that would be
poured out on us by so many new friends in the community. We were strangers. The faculty taught in the
Churches. The students served as baby-sitters and community volunteers. The administrators worked on
civic commissions and boards. The Lord used it all to open the hearts of many. Oh, how I praise the Lord for
His grace in establishing the strong base of support we now enjoy in the community and the ever growing
support of our sponsering denomination.
What of the future? I have never been so optimistic. We have godly leadership with a vision and the
commitment to carry it forward. We have an educational thrust the Christian community desperately needs
as our culture decays around us. We have alumnus serving our Savior and carrying our message
everywhere. The broader Christian community is awakening to the reality that God's hand is on us. We have
a clear purpose. Praise God for His mercy, kindness, and bounty. Our future is bright — Christ is with us in
